What happens if there is a nuclear war between Pakistan and India?

One of the downed planes crashed in Pakistan's part of Kashmir while the other went down in Indian-controlled section of the Himalayan region, Pakistan's army spokesman Maj. India's response marked the first time India dropped bombs in Pakistan-held Kashmir in decades.
